Watch: Who is Walter Lemon, Jr.?

The Boston Celtics have been busy of late.

After signing former Cal swingman and two-way player Jabari Bird to a two-year deal on the regular roster, the Celts have replaced his spot in the two-way guard rotation with Walter Lemon, Jr.


You are forgiven if you don't know who Lemon is, as he went undrafted out of Bradley University in 2014, playing overseas, on 10-day deals with the New Orleans Pelicans, and in the NBA G-League, where he averaged 22.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 2 steals per game.

While he might not be the best shooter from deep, he's an excellent scorer and solid defender with great court vision and a lightning pace, and has potential to step into a Shane Larkin/Brad Wanamaker-type role if he can improve his shooting.
